On Thursday, 23 June 2016, four lecturers from Kolej Universiti Islam Selangor (KUIS) came to the Centre for Islamic Development Management Studies (ISDEV), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) for a one day working visit. They were Puan Noor Idayu Abd Wahid, Puan Rahmatunnisah Sailin, Puan Siti Noor Ahmad and Puan Aemy Elyani Mat Zain. They were there with a common intention to seek ISDEV expertise and views for the publication of a textbook that they could use in the elective course offered by KUIS - Development of Human Potential (Pembangunan Potensi Insan).

In the afternoon session, in line with ISDEV work ethos to work in a jema'ah, other ISDEV lecturers were roped-in during the second session to get their opinions and feedback. At the same time the four lecturers from KUIS get the chance to be better acquainted with ISDEV lecturers.

The intended textbook is actually a collaboration between KUIS and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). The textbook is intended to become a module for the elective course in KUIS specifically with the hopes that it could also be used and referred to by other Institutes of Higher Education.
